  •  My best friends want to move to Maine, that is (6+ / 0-)

    their long term goal and dream. But they were both offered jobs with about the same pay as their jobs in PA. But both jobs offered little in the way of health insurance and most of it was to be paid by the employee. It was so expensive. Then the husband was offered a job with the same pay in PA but with excellent benefits where the employer pays for the entire premium and also pays for all the out of pocket but funding the HSA completely for the employees.  It turns out this employer is from Canada and believes the company should pay for all healthcare the employee needs since we do not have single payer in this country.

    Due to this fact, they are staying in PA because it is very hard for them to find employers who pay at least half the premium for health insurance or even offered health insurance.  We are all shocked as most jobs in PA they have had or we have had, offer health insurance that is not that shabby actually.
